Although I'm guessing that if I was a kid today, things would be different. Why, you ask? Oh you can bet I'm about to tell you. It would be different because now you can find belVita Breakfast Biscuits IN THE COOKIE AISLE! They are available in 5 delicious flavors: Golden Oat, Blueberry (my favorite), Apple Cinnamon, Cinnamon Brown Sugar (new), and Chocolate (new). That's the tasty bit. I don't mind grabbing one of the conveniently portioned crunchy and lightly-sweetened 4-packs on a morning that I am on the go. Or that I just don't feel like making a big production out of breakfast. Plus, when you pair them with some fresh fruit and low-fat dairy, you have a complete breakfast. Think Cinnamon Brown Sugar, a carton of low-fat Greek yogurt, and a juicy peach... That's nutritious energy that lasts all morning!
belVita Breakfast Biscuits are a good source of fiber and energy releasing b-vitamins, plus they have 18g-20g of whole grain per serving. They are free of high-fructose corn syrup, partially hydrogenated oils, and artificial flavors or sweeteners.
So really, they're NOT a cookie...they're a biscuit. That can be our little secret as you walk the kids down the cookie aisle in search of breakfast or a morning snack. You can also find them by the checkout counter. Nestled in among the sweets and sugary snacks. Who knows, maybe your kids will start reaching for "those cookies they eat for breakfast" instead of the candy bars.
If you think you've learned something about breakfast and belVita, then head over to walmart.com/belvita and take the belVita Breakfast Challenge and be entered to win a $500 Walmart gift card. To be entered, you simply need to complete three "challenges". The first challenge consists of 5 multiple-choice questions (you'll find a few of the answers somewhere in this post). The second challenge is a Prep & Go Hunt...points for starting your day off right (super easy - there are no wrong answers. Hint: pick belVita!!). The final challenge is a Flavor Matcher (basically, the Memory card-flipping game). Call me a dork, but I think it's kind of fun. And it only takes 5 minutes or so.
